Culture Quest


We travel to Kyoto, one of the most well-preserved cities in Japan where both domestic and international tourists flock to stroll the streets to get a sense of ancient Japan. We spend time with a classic starving artist trying to make it in the art world, a tattoo artist breaking new ground in what is still a taboo art form, and a modern artist with pieces in major museums around the world. All of these artists find at their core an essential blend between their ancient traditions and modern life.

series description

Culture Quest is a series that looks at life through the lens of the world's artists, artisans and keepers of culture. It's through that lens that we not only look at the day-to-day struggles and successes of the individual people we are spending time with, but also look at the larger issues that are affecting the places they call home. Culture Quest is a chance to see modern life through human expression that can range from ancient and traditional to modern and reactive. Looking at life through the lens of art, artisanship and traditional culture is a perfect way to hold up the mirror to the wide spectrum of struggles and successes that people around the planet go through each and every day of their lives.
